19:52:36 montagne#2 -> – I’m going to actually teach webcasting as part of my media class next year…
19:52:40 alicemercer -> – If they already have permission slip it should be okay
19:52:53 montagne#2 -> – parents will be signing off on an agreement…
19:53:02 chellouise -> – Oh montagne what fun they will have
19:53:07 JenW -> – LOL — I was kinda kidding about the TOS — but okay
19:53:11 alicemercer -> – Didn’t we have this discussion in re: arthus?
19:53:13 montagne#2 -> – they’ve been a total blast
19:53:15 alicemercer -> – Cause he is a minor
19:53:22 montagne#2 -> – I’m doing one the week after next as my 3rd interncast
19:53:28 montagne#2 -> – the kids are a total riot
19:53:35 JenW -> – it got very quiet
19:53:36 alicemercer -> – I’d like to chat about this since I teach elementary
19:54:06 chellouise -> – Did everybody leave you Jen?
19:54:10 murcha -> – Time zones are annoying if we want to join in with anything
19:54:10 mrsdurff -> – call in alice
19:54:15 montagne#2 -> – @chellouise…they are already thinking about their guest for our next show
19:54:40 tansmom -> – I would love to do this- maybe do a test run sometime before school is out
19:54:45 chellouise -> – @montagne SWEET! What topics have they been casting about?
19:54:52 montagne#2 -> – I did one student webcast about a month ago, and after that they all wanted to do this again…I was shocked
19:54:58 JenW -> – hmmmmm on all shows??
19:55:01 JenW -> – or just this show??
19:55:05 montagne#2 -> – they were all at home, they all installed skype, it was cool
19:55:11 dianerchen -> Room 4: http://regioniv.wikispaces.com/
19:55:40 chellouise -> – how neat and what a good way to get them engaged in the learning material
19:55:42 montagne#2 -> – Topics included: eeePC discussion, Vista OS, open source, browsers, iPhone hacks, etc
19:55:44 JohnS -> – We’re just talking about this one show. They’d probably participate as part of a class.
19:55:48 murcha -> – How old were your students @montagne#2. Neat idea
19:55:50 JohnS -> – They’re talking about doing it during the school day.
19:55:58 montagne#2 -> – @mucha…kids are 14
19:56:12 JenW -> – OKAY
19:56:19 montagne#2 -> – Here is the recording from my first show…
19:56:25 JenW -> – but how would you verify that the child did NOT sign the disclaimer/TOS
19:56:35 JenW -> – that the parent released it??
19:56:37 montagne#2 -> – unfortunately I was a knuckelehead and forgot to start the archving until 30 mins in
19:56:47 JenW -> – I think you would be getting into a bit of interesting territory
19:56:54 mrsdurff -> – πŸ™‚
19:57:11 montagne#2 -> – http://www.webcastacademy.net/node/2036
19:57:15 JenW -> – we can ask Brent on Tuesday about what he does
19:57:24 JenW -> – he has 5th graders and they post to iTunes
19:57:26 chellouise -> – This is an interesting discussion. Does anyone think we Americans have too much fear about using these technologies?
19:57:32 dianerchen -> Room 4: http://regioniv.wikispaces.com/
19:57:33 tansmom -> – so when we popped into ustream and chatted with KJ and kids, it was not ok?
19:57:41 JL -> – YEEEEESSSSS
19:57:47 montagne#2 -> – http://www.webcastacademy.net/node/1987 oops…this is the one with the audio file
19:57:53 JenW -> – tans — is the parent didn’t think so — there could be consequences
19:58:06 tansmom -> – yikes-
19:58:07 mrsdurff -> – i disagree
19:58:09 JenW -> – I would disagree Alice — especially if the show is AFTER school hours
19:58:24 JenW -> – if we are taking 8 – 3 yes
19:58:27 JenW -> – but an evening show
19:58:33 JenW -> – yes
19:58:38 mrsdurff -> – go alice!
19:58:47 montagne#2 -> – but what is school now?? Does it only happen from 8-3??
19:58:52 JenW -> – lol — i have been reprimanded πŸ™‚
19:59:09 montagne#2 -> – For me the AUP is 24/7
19:59:11 JenW -> – does the aup cover 24??
19:59:18 JenW -> – really?? that would be excellent
19:59:19 tansmom -> – so aup should cover more..
19:59:29 JohnS -> – If they’re participating on their own, not as part of a class, or under the direction of a student, then the aup doesn’t apply.
19:59:29 murcha -> – Can any permission forms keep up with technology developments
19:59:34 mrsdurff -> – at our school EVERYONE signs an AUP
19:59:39 JohnS -> – But if a teacher tells them to do it, that’s a hard case to make.
19:59:40 tansmom -> – mine too,
19:59:52 mrsdurff -> – on wards of the state can’t
19:59:58 montagne#2 -> – I used to only think we were responsible 8-3…but my thinking changed about 30 months ago…
20:00:01 JenW -> – if our AUP is 24/7 — then tons of kids are breaking it — at my school πŸ™‚
20:00:06 mrsdurff -> – and their voices CAN
20:00:15 montagne#2 -> – don’t get me wroing, I am a little nervous about some of the things I do
20:00:16 JenW -> – and our AUP is way too tight
20:00:32 tansmom -> – oh, ok, so if I just did voice- they asked questions..no video..that is ok durff?
20:00:37 JenW -> – Alice — LOL — ignore my text πŸ™‚ LOL
20:00:39 montagne#2 -> – but at the same time, we can’t be afraid of every possible chance outcome
20:00:41 Nedra -> – If a student records an answer on Voicethread do I need a permission slip for that?
20:00:43 mrsdurff -> – at our school if you don’t like the AUP you attend another school
20:00:50 JenW -> – you don’t have an AUP to say my name πŸ™‚
20:00:52 JohnS -> – It can’t be. The school can’t govern what kids do at home.
20:00:53 montagne#2 -> – @Nedra…agreed
20:01:02 tansmom -> – LOL @JW
20:01:08 dianerchen -> Room 4: http://regioniv.wikispaces.com/
20:01:23 mrsdurff -> – @Nedra depends
20:01:24 murcha -> – sorry bell has gone, I have to go Thanks for having me
20:01:26 chellouise -> – I really think we are too paranoid
20:01:33 JenW -> – I have no trouble with kids online — but I don’t want ETT to go down because a parent sues
20:01:43 montagne#2 -> – Also, the students who I ask to webcast do so under a totally volunteer basis…
20:01:54 mrsdurff -> – if it is my kid – they crawl away scared
20:02:09 montagne#2 -> – I don’t think anyone is going to sue ETT
20:02:13 mrsdurff -> – what is the point?
20:02:14 montagne#2 -> – sorry, but I don’t
20:02:20 montagne#2 -> – they could sue me…
20:02:26 mrsdurff -> – i agree with matt
20:02:36 montagne#2 -> – I’m not worth much!!:)
20:02:39 JenW -> – πŸ™‚
20:02:42 JenW -> – neither am I
20:02:42 montagne#2 -> – πŸ™‚
20:03:15 JenW -> – question though — if it is password protected — which you said — but then you said you could open it later — what would have changed??
20:03:40 mrsdurff -> – let’s do the walled garden and then podcast
20:03:42 JenW -> – if Lisa does it — everyone will want to do it
20:03:48 tansmom -> – scary to be on the bleeding edge sometimes lol
20:03:54 mrsdurff -> – no he won’t
20:04:00 alicemercer -> – I’ve had my say
20:04:01 montagne#2 -> – My next interncast is the week of May 12th…it will be with students again
20:04:08 JohnS -> – JenW — avoid accidental release of personally identifyable or inappropriate information.
20:04:09 mrsdurff -> – he wants me to webcast
20:04:11 montagne#2 -> – join in…the kids have been a blast!!
20:04:14 mrsdurff -> – with kids
20:04:28 alicemercer -> – NIGHT all
20:04:30 mrsdurff -> – parents want it
20:04:34 JenW -> – at JohnS — with my school right now — NOTHING is available
20:04:38 chellouise -> – g’night alice!
20:04:39 JenW -> – so I don’t have to worry
20:04:49 JenW -> – thanks for a good show
20:04:50 mrsdurff -> – i just need a download or two at school
20:04:50 dianerchen -> Room 4: http://regioniv.wikispaces.com/
20:04:50 montagne#2 -> – chow y’all

20:05:12 jamie -> – thanks everyone!
20:05:12 tansmom -> – good convo
20:05:23 mrsdurff -> – so it is like a Skype call if within a walled garden
20:05:24 tansmom -> – glad to be out of the penalty box

20:05:43 tansmom -> – have to get on the treadmill
20:05:44 tansmom -> – lol
20:05:47 mrsdurff -> – no problem with parents
20:05:48 tansmom -> – bye all
20:05:51 dianerchen -> Room 4: http://regioniv.wikispaces.com/
20:05:54 JenW -> – it is based on age — so it should have been 1 minute per year
20:05:57 JenW -> – πŸ™‚
20:05:57 mrsdurff -> – now i have two more kids
20:06:15 JenW -> – night Durff

  1. Congratulations on the 75th show
    I wanted to stand up and applaud EdTechWeekly’s achievement in doing a show every week (or so) 75 times. I’ve been a loyal listener (lurker) for over a year so I feel like I know all the hosts. I submit links on del.icio.us too but I enjoy the ones you highlight and the diversity of your perspectives. I seem to miss joining in live on Sundays, but I always feel invited and welcome through the download.

    Thank you for the show!
